Cannot drag tabs between view columns in Linux version

Cannot drag tabs between view columns in Linux version

Postby dnfehren on Wed Nov 30, 2011 6:56 pm

I'm trying out ST2 as my primary editor on the latest Crunchbang Linux Statler release (R20111125) running in a VirtualBox VM on a Windows 7 host. I am using Openbox version 3.5.0 and Sublime Text 2 Build 2144 installed via the web upd8 ppa (http://www.webupd8.org/2011/03/sublime- ... u-ppa.html). So far this is a great editor and works well in both my linux virtual machine and windows host.

However there is an issue with moving tabs between columns in the ST window. When I click/hold/drag the tab the course of movement of the mouse tracks is filled in with white and when I release the mouse button a new ST window opens up instead of the tab being dropped into the desired column. A screen shot below...

The keyboard commands (CTRL+SHIFT+number) and the View>Move File To Group menu work as expected, it's just the mouse option that causes problems.

I am guessing that is a problem with the interaction between the VM and ST (I haven't yet used ST in Gnome, XFCE etc) and probably not a problem internal to ST exactly, but wanted to note the issue for those that might be experiencing the same thing.

thanks very much and keep up the great work
Dan

I'm experiencing this problems with tab dragging on linux (ubuntu) too, although no graphical glitches. It brings my entire computer to a halt for about 15 seconds, until eventually it becomes responsive again and the tab has been separated into a new window.
